What is Hernia Mesh?
There are many types of hernia repair products available, but surgeons typically use a sterile, woven material made from a synthetic plastic-like material, such as polypropylene. The repair can be in the form of a patch that goes under or over the weakness, or it can be in the form of a plug that goes inside the hole. Mesh is very sturdy and strong, yet extremely thin. It is also soft and flexible to allow it to easily conform to body’s movement, position, and size. It is used in both tension-free and laparoscopic tension-free hernia repairs.
How is it applied?
It is generally available in various measurements and can often be cut to size. Depending on the repair technique used, it’s placed either under or over the defect in the abdominal wall and held in place by a few sutures. Mesh acts as “scaffolding” for new growth of a patient’s own tissue, which eventually incorporates into the surrounding area.
